Ridgid is expanding their JobMax line of interchangeable tool bases and attachments with a new 18V cordless power handle and a new reciprocating saw tool head.
Ridgid 18V Cordless Starter Kit
Ridgid already has 12V cordless, corded, and pneumatic base handles, so it makes sense to complete the series with an 18V power handle. Users had the option of going with Ryobi’s 18V JobPlus 18V handle, but that would require buying into the One+ platform.
The new 18V power handle has most of the same features as its siblings: tool-free quick connect interface, 4-direction head positions, multi-tool attachment with universal adapter, variable speed trigger, and ergonomic grip. It also has a grip light that activated an LED worklight independent of the trigger switch.
Batteries and charger are NOT included in the $99 price.

Ridgid Reciprocating Saw Attachment
There is a JobMax jigsaw attachment that came out over a year ago, but something has always been missing from the lineup – a reciprocating saw tool head.
- die cast gear housing
- compact head profile
- 4-direction head positions for easier access and cut control
- tool-free blade clamp
- lock-off lever to prevent accidental operation
- 0-3000 SPM
- stroke length of 1/2″
The tool head is priced at $69, and works with all of Ridgid’s JobMax power handles. For longer sawing tasks, go with the corded, 18V, or pneumatic power handles.
